Photoshop 911

Photoshop 911 Forums Closed for ever

Due to Black-Hat SEO agents, and Google we have closed the Photoshop 911 forums for ever. We were being hammered by stalkers, spammers and blackhat operators 24/7 around the clock, and Google could not recognize the difference between good content and bad content. We were being penalized by Google and we could not find any person at Google to explain why. Only canned responses to 10,000 pages of non-understandable rhetoric about how to follow Google's guidelines. There aren't enough days in the year to put up with that kind of foolishness -- so we closed. We have much better things to do than read Google docs.


The Design CAFE

After more than 20 years, the Design Cafe is closed

Due to Google penalties and Blackhat SEO, the forums are closed forever There are many Graphic design, illustration, publishing, photography, & Desktop Publishing meeting places online, and with the advent of Facebook, designers, illustrators, photographers and visual communicators discuss designing publications, designing web sites, software, hardware, advertising, marketing, and everything to do with the graphic arts business. Beginners to experts -- all are welcome in our Facebook forums at : https://www.facebook.com/groups/DTGmagazine/
